Clutter Clearing & Reducing Negative Chi
Clutter is draining and just not good feng shui. It can keep you from accomplishing your goals. Starting to clear clutter is never easy. Depending on the area of your home it can make you feel block or stuck in that area of your life. Think career, health, relationships and wealth. Chi energy needs a clear open path, so it can bring positive benefits to every part of your life. Learn strategies to deal with clutter and how to mitigate negative chi or electromagnetic frequencies in your home.

Furniture Placement
A house is considered a home when people enjoy peace and harmony in their environment. Good luck and prosperity come along with the proper furniture placement in the house. There is a system I will teach of feng shui which dates back to ancient China that can be applied to furniture arrangement to make the home and environment more harmonious, peaceful, healthy and prosperous.

Color and the Five Elements
Color is one of the easiest ways to shift the energy in your home or office in order to create good feng shui. Working with color can be tricky. Color is alive and its good feng shui is dependent on many things, In this workshop we will look at 3 things: The quality of light in your home, your best colors, and the best colors for different directions of your home. We will explore feng shui color tips, so you can find the best colors for your home and life. Please bring specific concerns to the workshop.
